love-yourselves

was just going through my photo tag and I’m getting emotional over how incredibly kind, encouraging and lovely you’ve all been to me.

you may think it’s easy for me to post selfies and photos but I’m 100% letting you know it’s you guys who have really encouraged me over this last year particularly - I went through a phase not too many years ago where I didn’t take a single selfie for months on end because I wasn’t happy with how I looked, but the way you guys have been so SO uplifting on tumblr has helped make me more confident and happy with who I am :)))) so thank u endlessly 💖💖💖

But the most beautiful things in life are not things. They’re people, and places, memories, and pictures. They’re feelings and moments and smiles and laughter.

Oh! I’ve never really posted full body pics but I can say I’m a lot more comfortable and confident in who I am, how I look like, as well as my fashion senses to do so now🙈 I’m sure y'all heard it before but it still stands, love yourselves!! Like seriously, love yourselves! If you wanna wear it, wear it! (I’m wearing antennas, like😭)People get judged for shit as little as the point of their nose. Ya got one life to live, make it the best one you can. But be safe okay??

petals precious and soft just like her soul,
and stem curved just like her spine.

Now close your eyes, and please understand that you are still young, and the universe is endless, and somehow, everything will be okay.

I’m starting over. But, I’m not just dyeing my hair or changing my style this time. It’s all on the inside. I’m fixing things. I’ll be doing a whole lot of forgiving, and even more forgetting.

if you get mad at yourself a lot for stuff a good thing to do instead of punishing yourself is to think “would I get mad at a dog for doing this?”

sleep too much or only at weird times? still a good dog
sometimes feels like/actually needs to shout for no reason? still a good dog
has periods of uncontrollable hyperactivity?  still a good dog
eats too much/eats things you probably shouldn’t? still a good dog
too friendly/enthusiastic/free with affection? still a good dog
scared or nervous around new people? still a good dog
easily startled by loud noises/new places/imagined threats? still a good dog
obsessive over certain people and objects/only happy in your safe spaces? still a good dog
zero impulse control? still a good dog
any and all of the above? still a good dog

basically we don’t get angry at dogs for any of that because they are good and perfect angels and so are you so give yourself a break sometimes

Okay, so correct if I’m wrong, but…  

…aren’t sharp weapons…

…that are also guns….

…like…

…like…really, really dangerous? Like just straight-up stupidly dangerous? Like “Hey, lemme just use these guns as nunchucks WHOOPS I SHOT MYSELF IN THE GODDAMN FACE.” 

I mean, look at Blake:

It’s a sword. But also a gun?? But she also swings it around??? While continuing to use it as a gun???? She is literally swinging around arguably one of the most dangerous-to-use weapons ever conceived?????????

Your mental health comes before school, always. If it’s midnight, and you have an exam the next day, but your hands have been shaking for the past hour and a half and you’re not so sure you want to be alive anymore, pull out that tub of Ben and Jerry’s and afterwards, go to sleep. So what if you only get 68% on the exam the next day? You took care of yourself and at the end of the day that will always come before a high test score. To hell with anyone who tell you differently.
